Blogs in this series

Life in Culebrón is a very British view of life in a small village in Alicante province, my experience of Spain, of Spaniards and sometimes of the other Britons who live nearby. The tabs beneath the header photo link to other blogs written whilst I was living in other parts of Spain, to my articles written for the now defunct TIM magazine and to my most recent photo albums.

Alcoi gets ready


Alcoi has one of the larger Moors and Christians Festivals in the area. It is set around the day of the town's Patron Saint, one Sant Jordi, better known to we Brits as Saint George.

When we passed through today preparations were well in hand even down to a local hat shop being able to supply turbans for each and every one of the Moorish bands.
